Marseille vs Monaco: Ligue 1 2023/24 Live Stream, Form Guide, Head to Head, Schedule, Fixture and Probable Lineups

Two teams eyeing European qualification clash in Ligue 1 this Saturday as Marseille hosts Monaco at Stade Vélodrome. In their recent league match, Marseille drew 1-1 with Strasbourg, trailing Lille by three points for a European spot and trailing Monaco by six points. Monaco slipped to fourth place after a 3-1 loss to Reims.

Marseille, under Gennaro Gattuso, has been consistently getting results since late November, with only two losses in their last 11 matches across competitions. Despite a shootout defeat in the Coupe de France last Sunday, they’ve earned points in seven consecutive league games. Although unbeaten in 13 home fixtures this season, Marseille has struggled to climb the Ligue 1 table, currently with 28 points, 11 less than the previous season. Notably, they’ve dropped points in four matches when scoring first. While defensively sound, conceding fewer than 20 goals, they face a challenge against Monaco, having conceded in 13 successive home fixtures against them.

Monaco faced a shaky start to the 2024 domestic season, conceding multiple goals for the first time since matchday 13, resulting in a 5-2 defeat against Paris Saint-Germain. Recent struggles, with two losses in their last three Ligue 1 games, have dropped them to just two points above Lille for a Champions League qualifying place. While facing challenges at Stade Louis II, Monaco has found success in consecutive away victories. Although their title hopes lag 10 points behind PSG, they trail Brest by only a point for a Champions League group stage spot, maintaining a season without consecutive defeats. Against Marseille, they’ve historically excelled, scoring 44 goals in their previous encounters and losing only one of eight competitive games at Stade Vélodrome since 2013-14.
